Bio

I am an information security professional, avid amateur photographer, Linux and macOS geek, and haunter of the woods.

With WordPress, I have helped local organisations such as the Princeton Macintosh Users Group, the Montgomery Friends of Open Space, and the Montgomery Business Association create platforms for communicating who they are and what they do. I’m a proponent of the IndieWeb movement.

Interests

Photography, Walking, Hiking,IndieWeb
